"The opportunity to earn industry-recognized SANS/GIAC certification is an unparalleled benefit. Employers really take notice. And of course, the people. I made long-lasting friendships with wonderful women in my SANS Academy class. I still speak with many of them today. It was an unexpected but welcome outcome." - Carlota Bindner, Security Associate, Rapid7
